We understand that pressure is being
brought to bear to have our city coun
cil pass an anti-x ray skirt ordinance.
We have no doubt, should a crisis arise,
but what Marshal Myers will be equal
to the occasion.
The Warren Construction Co. is re
ported to be getting ready to move its
plant from this city. Some of our
people are wondering if the Headlight
will follow suit. The consensus of
opinion is to the effect that it might as
As evidence that Tillamook County '
beaches are becoming popular, we .
might mention the fact that 500 people
left Portland for Tillamook Cou ity last
Saturday afternoo i. The crowd filkd
eight coaches and it took five engines
to pull the train out of Portland.
Many thousands of people are enjoying
our seashore resorts this hummer, and
there is no question but what the num
bers will be greatly increased next
year. There are but few place which
afford such a diversified list of outdoor
enjoyments as do the 1 iilamook County ,
resorts. Besides the sea shore and
bathing privileges, there is the health
ful exercise, mountain climbing and
fish and game in abundance.
With this issue of the Herald we are ,
endeavoring to lay special stress upon
the importance of Tillamook County's j
First Annual Fair and at the same j
time review the general development
and progress of the county from every '
standpoint. No figures or space has .
been given the lumber industry, to
speak of, because of the fact that the !
manufacture of lumber has hardly be-'
gun as yet. However, Wc might state
that the stand of timber in Tillamook
County is estimated at from twenty to ,
thirty-two billion board feel and that j
it will cost in wages and equipment ap
proximately $275,000,000 to place the i
same on the market. Our otner assets 1
are: the dairy industry, the raising of
berries and vegetables. Our beautiful:
sea shores in conjunction with our
splendid system of roads now being
constructed and contemplated are ulso I
one oi our most valuable assets, We
are sure it would be hard for one to
find a spot which contains more unde
veloped wealth nnd opportunities than
does Tillamook County. Our county
which contains over 1100 square miles
is indeed a kingdom within itself,

Sunday evening. Mr. Taylor gave us
some interesting information in regard
to the present day co.ub.it against the
saloon. He stated that 71 per cent of
the geographical extent of the United
States was dry territory; and that
16,000,000, or half the population of
the country wa living under a dry
regime. It is true that the consump
tion of liquors is on the increase, but
this is because of the great increase of
consumption of liquors in wet terri
tory As proof that prohibition prohibits
he gave the following figures from the
brewers year bcok whi'-h i considered
authentic; amount of liquor drank in
Pennsylvania, per capita, ,'Ci callous;
ii. New York, per capita 29 gallons ; in
Nev.- Jersey, pT capita, 15 gallons; in
Wisconsin, per capita, CI gallons. The
amount "f liquor dran.c in the eight
prohibition states is lj gallons per cap
ita. Mr. Taylor gave many instances of
the influence which tne Wcdb-Ker.yon
liquor bill was yeilding against the
liquor traffic by stopping the shipment
of liquor from wet to dry "tales. The
Webb-Kenyon bill is doing the business
and there is no no reason for voting
wet because liquor can be shipped from
wet territory.
Barlin, Aug.
is reported to have joined the ranks
the teetotalers. It is known that dur
ing his recent northern cruice the Em
peror abandoned use of all alcoholic
beverages, and It is understood that he
permanently has forsworn even the
fatherland's famous beer and its choic-'
est wines. Ah a substitute he has tak

In imperial circles it has long been
known that Emperor William was
greatly impressed with htatistical study
of the effects of alcohol, ranging from
crime t-- impairment of man's working
efficiency. He often expressed the
opinion to members of his court that
immoderate drinking was one of the
greatest factors in retarding the devel
opment of nationa, and while he was
swearing in naval recruits ut Wilhelrn
shaven recently he took occasion to de
liver a let-lure on temperance. He also !
recently told army officers that he
would be well pleased if toasts to his'
health were drunk in water. The Em
peror has not forced his opinion on his
friends, however, and hla own stand
has received little publicity, perhaps
for the same reason that the Minister
of Education of a south German state
once oppo-ied the establishment of a
Good Templar lodge on the ground that
it threatened one of the most impor
tant inuusiries or me empire. Tne lm-.

The Necessities
Tillamook as the metropolis of the
regit ii in which it is Minuted, supplio
a large territory with food produ:ts.
This fact hiis resulted in the establish
ment of numerous large food supply
houses that are growing with Lie
country, although sometimes experi
encing difficulty in meeting the rapi.j
ly increabing demands.
The opening of the beaches and their
immediate astonishing popularity
caused an Influx of jieople unprecedent
ed and more or Icsh unexiected. To
supply their needs and keep pace with
local conditions irnosed a large, yet
welcome burden Uwn the merchants.
They have, however, met the emer
gency with characteristic efficiency
nnd now have things running smoothly.
The Tillamook Meat Co probably is
supplying more meat to a larger terri
tory than any retail market In the
state of Oregon. Mr. Leach is iu
owner and manager, has lived hero for
many years and built up his business
with painstaking care, It is tho only
butchering concern In Tillamook and
maintains Its supremacy through busi
ness acumen of Mr. Leach.
Tho Tillamook Hakery Is also alone
in iU field, yet meets all demands and
is giving satisfaction and fair treat
merit to all. Mr. Vlerlckwas former'
ly a 1'ortland business miin, but Is
willing to admit the city never Imposed
more responsibility nor greater de
mands upon him than the worK of sup.
